The only competition for the Sony R10 + the proper amp (in my case, the Melos Maestro-- list price $2300) is the Sennheiser Orpheus. I can't say which is better, given that I haven't had the $12K Orpheus system in my own set-up to compare against my R10/Melos Maestro. It would be close, though....

Well if you just go by price alone the Sennheiser Orpheus cans are the most expensive. 6k for the cans plus 6k for the amp. I for one am VERY happy with my 'cheap' $270 ety er-4p's

The R10 is it for me. I like the Grado HP-1000 series a lot, but the R10 is in a class by itself. I can't explain it. All I can say is, once you hear it, you'll know.

The Orpheus combo is available individually - and it is 50% for the headphones and 50% for the amp. Crazy, I know.

There are no ultimate headphones - there are lots of expensive ones and lots of less-expensive ones.

I've yet to hear anything better than the R10 and the Orpheus.
